Rising from animal claw footed ring turned, tapering and reeded legs, with carved stiff-leaf capitols; the fielded panelled platform of breakfront form, housing an oak lined lockable central drawer, now baize lined, with quadrant mouldings, having swept ends, with lion masks holding annuli.

George Smith dedicated his Collection of Designs for Household Furniture, published in 1808, to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, to whom he claimed to be ‘Upholder Extraordinary’. The many concordances of our piece to Plate 92 are readily acknowledged.
